Worst Film Strip

While some of you may have a worst photo, I have a worst film strip. This was from my first roll of film. This was not just one un-exposed frame, it was 4. And since I was using a half-frame Holga, that's equal to 8 pictures!

Then, after I had them developed, I taped the film strip to my scanner thinking I can get that one picture (the only frame that actually has a photo) to appear. (There was no digitaliza back then), EPIC FAIL!

My first few rolls of film were the worst, but they were the ones that taught me the most lessons.
Know when to use flash
and You can't just tape your film to your scanner

Haha! I'm sure i'm not the first one to try this thinking it would work
